With too much water the crescent board warps and doesn't flatten out until completely dry.

Works great for Mixed Media
By Rocky Mountain Rake
Works great for mixed media art with watercolors for the background and acrylic gouache for the main subject. It gives me a smoother background that resembles a photo's bokeh effect. Will also try it out with the backdrop done with airbrush next. Much better than all acrylic gouache on clayboard; the backdrop never got to be completely smooth - with illustration board, no problem, and no waves as with standard watercolor papers.

Perfect for my students!
from San Carlos
When working with students or doing my own drawing I love to use Crescent Illustration board. It elevates a pencil rendering and encourages my students to put in that extra effort. They are then amazed at what they can do!
Arrived in perfect condition
I use this for colored pencil art when I use Mineral Spirits. It stands up to lots of punishment.

from San Diego, CA
I use this product for mounting printed signage for a gallery. The product serves exactly what I need - always clean and not bent or torn. The corners are not damaged almost every time - it is very hard to find this product elsewhere with undamaged corners. The product arrived before I expected it. Couldn't be happier!
Best prices for great quality
Illustration board in bulk
By Painter Sue
from Des Moines, IA
The Cresent illustration board arrived in perfect condition. No bent corners and now discoloration. Just a great surface ready to accept a bit of water and as much paint as you please. Wish the board was a bit thicker for less curling.
Just what I was looking for
from Allentown, PA
I have never used illustration boards in the past but they were just what I was hoping for. Held up to many different mediums and maintained its quality. Great price for bulk which I needed!
An Opportunity for More Experiments
from Sacramento, CA
I read about the versatility of illustration board for certain mixed media works in a book and am excited to try out this Crescent illustration board that is nice and thick and will not buckle, yet isn't as ponderous as a canvas. They are a great, inexpensive support that I'm looking forward to experimenting with!
Perfection as always from BLICK
from Paducah, KY
So many uses it that it so good to do any medium from illustration from water color, pen and ink and calligraphy. Great product!
